Entertainment

Put on your PJs and party at the Royal

It’s a pyjama party with a purpose as the Royal Hotel teams up with the Ann Davis Transition Society for a fun-filled evening of wine, live entertainment, fundraising and more on April 12.

Women aged 19 to 90 will don their best sleepwear for the inaugural “Pyjamas for a Purpose” event in support of the programs and services provided to Chilliwack by the Ann Davis Transition Society.

The fun-filled evening starts at 6:30 p.m. and includes live musical entertainment by Damian Brennan, wine education and tasting with Chaberton Estate Winery, 30 minutes of Zumba by local, licensed instructor Alma Schlitt (who has graciously donated her services), appetizer and dessert buffet, skin care and facials and ending with a prize for best pyjama outfit before the ladies retreat to their rooms for the night.

There will also be a silent auction with 100 per cent of proceeds going to Ann Davis Transition Society. In addition to the fun-filled evening events, included with your ticket is one-night accommodation at the Royal Hotel and a continental breakfast the next morning.

To reach its goal of presenting 100 pairs of new pyjamas to Ann Davis, the Royal Hotel will start collecting pyjamas on April 1. A drop-off box for new pyjama donations will be located in the lobby of the Royal Hotel from April 1 through April 12, culminating with the “Pyjamas for a Purpose” pj party on April 12. In addition to holding a ticket to the event, a pair of new pyjamas is also required for admission to this women’s event.

Women are encouraged to bring their best friend, mother or sister and come party in their pjs on April 12 at the Royal Hotel, supporting Ann Davis Transition Society’s programs and services while enjoying a charming hotel room at the 106-year-old Royal Hotel.

The Ann Davis Transition Society has been providing services for women, men and children who have been victims of abuse since 1979. These services include counselling, crisis intervention and therapy as well as refuge for women and their children who have suffered abuse.
